by Andy Robinson - Jul, 2012

Use this time to reflect back on the first six months of the year and make adjustments to your goals for the remainder of the year. Consider these 10 QUESTIONS to ask during your mid-year review: 5 "Look-Back" Questions: 1.Key Acc...

WHICH HALF ARE YOU?
by Nan S. Russell - Jul, 2012
When more than half of Americans were identified as overweight, people took notice. Major news outlets began educating on how to stay out, or get out, of that statistic. I wish the same attention had been paid when a new survey was released confirming more than half of Americans are dissatisfied with their job. Disliking your job is hazardous to your health and well-being, too. You can't be winning at working if you're diss...
Painless ways to control your online reputation
by Miriam Salpeter - Jul, 2012
Many job-seekers underestimate how important it is to have an online presence—a digital footprint to help convince potential hiring managers that they are right for the job. There is no question a person's online reputation makes a big difference for job-search success. But ironically, the worst outcome of having a recruiter search for you on the Web would be if he or she found nothing at all. In a digital age, having noth...

Consciousness in the Workplace
by Wendy Adams - Jul, 2012
OK, so this is not exactly what you would expect to see on a serious job board, however before you tune out…consider this. Your work comprises more dedicated time that all other activities save sleeping. My bet is that sleeping comes second if you are like most Americans. Today, I read an obscure posting online. In summary, the author was working 40 hours a week, making decent raises (5% or better) and comfortable in his...
Are Employers Spying on You with Facebook?
by Joshua Waldman - Jul, 2012
Facebook’s privacy issues have come and gone in past months. With their recent release of the “groups” feature, we now have more control over who can see what. But is that enough? Or better yet, is technology the answer to a fundamentally human problem? For me, the issue is the use of Facebook in the job search. Probably the most controversial question I get is, “Can I use Facebook in my job search?” Certainly, when yo...

by Nan S. Russell - Jul, 2012
It feels great at the end of a workday to know you've made progress on a mounting to-do list, resolved a persistent problem, dealt with a difficult challenge, or accomplished an important objective. Yet, too often we get to the end of a day and haven't felt feelings of satisfaction, accomplishment, or progress at work, at least not as much as we'd like. Instead, frustration, bureaucracy, and unresponsiveness creep in to th...
LinkedIn Connections as a Career Management Tool
by Georgia Adamson - Jul, 2012
Unless you’re a LION (LinkedIn Open Networker) whose goal is to collect many thousands of connections in your network, you probably don’t spend a huge amount of time trying to increase your network. That’s either a good thing or a bad thing, depending on whom you ask. As a disclaimer, I should mention that I’m a conservative LinkedIn member.
